Brisbane’s newest dining club

There’s a new club in town – a club designed not for car enthusiasts or book lovers, but for people who love to eat. Which, let’s face it, is all of us. Launching on June 20, The Dining Club is a clique for everyone who’s ever wished their bank balance was as big as their appetite, with a virtual platter of delicious discounts. No longer do you need to go rummaging through the pile of expired shop-a-dockets and voucher booklets in your kitchen draws – heck you don’t even need a membership card (although you’ll get a snazzy one to slip in your wallet when you join). With The Dining Club, you’ll get a virtual e-card to stick in your virtual pocket (ie your phone), one that you’ll never leave at home and wind up cursing as you pay your (full and undiscounted) bill. So what do you get? Something far tastier than a free soft drink with your meal, that’s for sure. With The Dining Club on your side, you’ll get a minimum of 10% off the total bill at an ever-growing list of restaurants (including the booze!) – and that’s just the beginning! At some venues, you’ll get 15, 20 even 25% off the bill, for you and at least one other diner, with most eateries generously letting you use the discount for up to 5 or 10 fellow food lovers. Use it to garner favour with your friends – or to get yourself a free meal out of the group dining experience, it’s up to you. In just a few short weeks, you’ll be able to get your hands on 3, 6 or 12 month memberships to this drool-worthy club for as little as $5 a month, but sign up right now and you could be one of the 1000 hungry foodies with a free 3 month membership! 3 months of cheaper bills whenever you dine? You’ll practically save money by eating out! Already part of The Dining Club family are mouth-watering dining spots like Pony Dining, Ahmet’s, Corbett & Claude, Atalanta and Gianni’s Kitchen, amongst a handful (mouthful?) of other hanger-busting spots. Cheaper yiros from The Yiros Shop and budget-friendly excuses to head out for Sunday brunch at Sassafras Canteen or Suburban Café? Yes, please! So don’t waste time counting pennies or organising your ‘voucher’ drawer any longer – head to The Dining Club’s website to sign up now for a free 3 month membership! Or, if 3 months just isn’t enough for you, head to our Facebook page where we’re giving away five 12 month memberships to a few lucky foodies! Words by Ranyhyn Akui Keeping the G&G up to date with all the latest tasty tidbits requires a lot of double lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally need to give out some sponsored love. But rest assured that we only work with businesses that we think are really nifty, as the sponsor for this post is!
